Clinical Faculty Development
Our Faculty Development Program is essential to support our clinical faculty in their roles as teachers, mentors, and leaders. Our program promotes professional advancement in educational and leadership skills, as well as personal development. We achieve this by providing group sessions during our site visits to clinical faculty at core rotation sites, and we are also implementing long-distance faculty development opportunities.
We are able to provide CME credits for both AMA and AOA for the participating faculty.
Available Faculty Development topics:
- Structuring the medical learning experience in the clinical practice
- What to expect from 3rd year medical students
- Giving effective feedback
- Working with the difficult learner
- Writing letters of recommendation
- The COMLEX PE exam and how to help our students be successful
Other faculty development topics are developed each academic year! If you have a topic you want covered for faculty development, please email Dr. Teresita Menini.
TUCOM Faculty Development Symposium 2018
The Clinical Education Department sponsors annual faculty development symposiums for adjunct faculty and other physicians that want to improve their ability to train medical students. Relevant topics are explored each year in didactics sessions, engaging activities, and hand-on workshops. CME credits are also available for participation in the symposium.
Save the date! This year's symposium will be held on Sunday, August 19th.
Clinical Site Visits
Site visits occur annually at our core sites and other institutions the Clinical Education Department works closely with. These are conducted in order to improve the clerkship experience for rotating students, facilitate faculty development, and assist in growing GME programs in an effort to improve the quality of medical education.
To schedule a site visit, please contact David DiGiovanni.
